CBI chief urges rethink on apprenticeship training levy (FT p4 28/4/16)

The CBI has called on the Government to "radically rethink" the Apprenticeship Levy which

will be introduced next year. Businesses with a pay bill of £3 million or more will pay a 0.5%

payroll tax to pay for millions of apprenticeships across the country from April 2017. Carolyn

Fairbairn, CBI Director General, said businesses are concerned about the impact of the

"rushed out" plans. The LGA said the levy would cost councils £207 million a year with less

than 10% of local authorities exempt. It wants the money raised to be pooled locally so local

areas can ensure the money is spent on closing skills gaps and meeting employers' needs.
